A lesson from the monks...
There’s a lovely story that illustrates how emotional stress
and negative mental thoughts can affect us. It goes like this...
One day two monks go for a walk outside the temple. They've taken a vow of silence and may not interact with each other, let alone women.
During their walk, they see a woman struggling to cross a river. So, one of the monks rushes over, picks the woman up and carries her across the river.
This violation of their order is deeply disturbing to the second monk. After three hours of thinking about this, he could hold it no longer and finally exclaimed, "How could you pick up that woman back there, you know we're not supposed to?!”
To which the first monk calmly responds, "I held that woman for five minutes - you’ve been carrying her for three hours!”
Before bed every night, take the opportunity to examine what you have spent time thinking about (or obssessing about) that day and ask yourself, "Is it worth mentally carrying it, and is it keeping you from being present in the moment to your family, friends, and JUST AS IMPORTANTLY, to yourself?"
